Did You Watch More Than 33 Episodes of TV Last Month?

That's how many episodes of TV I watched last month. Ok - I'm a bit shocked since it's higher than I thought especially since I don't think I consume all that much TV, but sometimes I can crank out several episodes at a time like Homeland or Game of Thrones. Pop Quiz - how many episodes of TV did you watch last month and which episodes did you watch? My guess is you probably don't know. I actually never knew how much TV I consumed until I started checking into shows and marking episodes as watched. Because I'm pretty lazy, I don't track what shows or seasons or episodes I'm on. I usually have to kind of figure it out when I start watching TV.  As I reflect a bit on my TV watching, it's interesting that I've forgotten almost all of the TV I watch even though I consumed nearly 40 hours of TV last month.  Wouldn't it be great to at least have something to show for it?  Perhaps, something that tracks my watching so that I know what I'm watching and can remember what I've watched?   

There is a pretty easy, lazy, and free way of tracking all the TV I watch and makes it easy to figure out what to watch next. 

On BuddyTV Guide, I actually check into shows that I'm watching and it'll mark the show as watched.  I can go into any series like Homeland and see what episodes I've watched and if I take a long vacation from watching TV, I know exactly which episode to come back to. That's all I do, just check in, or go to the Homeland page episode guide and just mark off all the episodes that I've watched.  I know if I'm a season off or if there is a new episode airing.

Tracking your viewing then becomes really useful. You know what shows you're consuming, how many episodes are remaining, and where to start next. BuddyTV Guide will send you reminders if you want to know when it's playing on TV next or where you can watch the episode for the cheapest price.  All you have to do is check in and/or mark off the episodes you've watched in the episode guide.

Even if you don't use BuddyTV Guide, track your viewing - it's more fun, useful, and most of all you'll get more out of your TV viewing.   What do you think?
